It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

I am finally feeling festive, it's taken a while but I suppose it's not bad thing , when Christmas starts in October in the shops and the adverts are on so early on UK television I suppose you can get a bit fed up with it by the big day, which when it comes down to it is just a day. Out here Christmas is celebrated but is very low key compared to the UK, and of course it doesn't seem quite the same in the sun.

I am now looking forward to Christmas day, we are spending it with some very good friends of ours, Sam, Marc and Leiarna and I'm getting quite excited. We are all ready, chicken has been brought (turkey's are stupidly expensive here so we've spent the difference on other edible goodies) we are all stocked up on alcohol and chocolates  and presents are wrapped.

Leo has a stocking and a couple of big presents (mega blocks and a wooden train set, but don't tell him!) we have some presents to take to our friends with us as well. Sam and I have brought the kids 3 presents each for when we are all together so they will have loads in total!

We put our tree up last week, can you believe we thought about not having one!

I was worried that Leo would attack it constantly, but so far he's not been too bad. He looks and prods the baubles but generally leaves it alone when asked moved away. I'm surprised as he's into everything all the time and I thought the sparkly tree would be irresistible!


  1. Aww it looks lovely and festive! So far Burton hasn't been too bad apart from removing one bauble repeatedly! Turkey isn't all it's cracked up to be anyway, chicken just as nice if not nicer :)

  2. Great tree. Glad you decided to put one up! It wouldn't be Christmas without one! Hope you have a lovely time.

  3. So glad you are feeling it! It always takes me until the last week. Love the one of Leo looking at the tree. Happy Christmas! Have a fab one x
